1. With an hour to kill, I wandered the home store and ran across a new product to keep deer away. It's innovative, practical and affordable. I eagerly bought it and have high hopes for my garden.
2. Prompted with my new deer repellent, I tackle the raspberry bed which was left to languish after the deer ate them down. I weed it, apply composted manure and stake out the deer repellent. I really want this to work. Don't let me down, Sweeney's.
3. Steve comes out to photograph me as I weed. His habit is to photograph only one part of me as his sense of humor dictates. Whatever.
